Prolotherapy in Denver
Prolotherapy is a nonsurgical procedure that stimulates and enhances the body’s healing process to strengthen and repair injured joints and connective tissue. Simply put, Protherapy is a treatment used to treat connective tissue injuries like tendons, ligaments that have not healed on their own. So, when these connective tissues are stretched or torn, it can destabilize the joint causing pain, laxity and improper moments of the joint.
Ligaments help keep our joint stable. With repetitive use or injury, ligaments can become stretched and unstable. Prolotherapy helps to strengthen ligaments and provides longevity in sports

Most of the time you need to do a series of injections to gain the most from prolotherapy. For mild to moderate injuries, 3 injections generally work well. You will want to have 3 to 4 weeks between each injection. For more severe injuries, you may need 5 injections. Doing dry needling between injections can also help with the healing but needs to be done at the appropriate time and more moderate in nature. Ask about of 9 week program for best results!

What is in an Injection?
The most common ingredient injected is dextrose at a concentration of 12.5% – 25%. Dextrose is a natural sugar that will cause an inflammatory response. This increases the circulation and brings with it oxygen and other nutrients to the area. While each provider can use a different formula, here at Prolotherapy of Denver, we use a combination of Dextrose, B12 (hydroxocobolamin), and Lidocaine (to ease the patient’s discomfit). By using natural substances that the body can recognize, it helps the body in healing and reduces the chance of a patient reacting to the injection.
